Electrified Mobility 2019
Improving customer focus, reducing costs and increasing profitability
2nd International ATZ Congress
12-11-2019 – 13-11-2019 – Mannheim, Germany
Electric mobility is regarded as a guarantor of climate protection and good air quality. However, it calls for a rethink on the part of automobile manufacturers, who are currently providing economic growth and employment with both cars and commercial vehicles with combustion engines. But how can the change process succeed? The "Electrified Mobility" congress will provide concrete answers to these questions. The mobility concepts of the future will be discussed in numerous specialist lectures, as will the possibilities of converting the transport system from conventional fuels to fuel cells and electric drives. Experts will provide insights into the development stage of the components required for this and the necessary infrastructure.
Electric mobility is taking off all over the world and the annual production figures of German car manufacturers have now reached six digit number. The network of charging points is growing and billions are still being invested in the technology. A breakthrough for electric mobility is on the cards, but it will not happen until the development of the products and the expansion of the infrastructure are synchronized. The cost remains too high because the profitability levels in many disciplines are low. Without profitability there will be no breakthrough.
With the theme of “Cost down, scaling up,” this year‘s ATZ Electrified Mobility conference is focusing on the necessary cost reductions. Makingthe components cheaper is an important first step, but it is not enough on its own. Leaner processes are also unlikely to do the trick, as some speakers and solution providers are warning. If we do not have the courage to adopt new business models, electric mobility will fail in many areas. A number of prominent studies have also criticized the poor sustainability record of electric mobility. This criticismis justified, but it must be incorporated into a balanced debate and countered where appropriate. However, this will only be possible if our engineers can develop more sustainable innovations. This is the purpose of the presentations and the panel discussions at the conference.

2 Conferences in one location
Electric mobility is picking up speed. To achieve a breakthrough, traffic concepts, vehicles and infrastructure must work together perfectly. Our established ATZlive conferences Electrified Mobility and Grid Integration of Electric Mobility cover precisely these topics. In order to enable the participants to form a broader opinion, we will hold these two conferences simultaneously at the same location starting this year.
The independent character with the well-known technical depth will be retained for each conference. Participants will have the opportunity to switch to the parallel conference and thus broaden their perspective. In this way, we promote communication beyond our own specialist field at an interface that is crucial to the success of electromobility.
The ATZlive Conference “Electrified Mobility” is aimed at decision-makers on a strategic and technical level, development engineers and experts working for car and commercial vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, and development service providers, employees at research institutes and universities, planners and operators of testing facilities, employees of telecommunications service providers, IT companies, energy providers, power grid operators, federal agencies and state ministries, city planning, vehicle fleet organizations, associations, and NGOs dealing with mobility concepts and electric mobility.
